    The Keen Durand Low WP Men's Hiking Shoe isn't the biggest, baddest, or burliest hiker out there, but it more than makes up for its moderate ruggedness with a super-soft waterproof suede and mesh upper and a seriously comfortable out-of-the-box fit. Of course, it's designed more for day hikes or backpacking trips under light loads than month-long treks, so it doesn't need the support of an expedition boot, but it still boasts a removable dual-density footbed, PU midsole and heel cushion, and a TPU stability shank for plenty of cushioning and stability. It's also been outfitted with a waterproof and breathable Keen.Dry membrane to make short work of rainstorms and wet trails, and boasts a grippy dual-compound rubber sole for serious traction on all sorts of smooth and slick surfaces.

    Pure Jealousy

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small

    I ordered these boots for my boyfriend for a long hiking trip we have coming up and I am in love with them! I'm so jealous of them that I ordered myself a pair because of the comfort and lightness they give. I had a pair of Merrell's which were great but too bulky for my liking. He's so excited to use these and I can't wait for mine to arrive!! The boots do run small so go up a size. Thanks Bill Porreca for helping me find the perfect one! Everyone should email him at bporreca@backcountry.com if you have any questions or need something!

    Durable, comfortable, but not breathable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    So far so good, I've had these for a few months and have thus far worn them around town some and on a few shorter hikes and climbing approaches. Very sturdy and yet very comfortable on your feet which doesn't always go together.
    My one complaint is that I haven't found them to be very breathable. Meaning my feet often feel very warm in them so when hiking during a hot summer day I've felt the urge to take a break and take them off for a few minutes. Breathability might be the price you pay for a fully waterproof shoe.
    I still definitely give them the thumbs up though, maybe with the exception of is someone is hiking primarily in very hot climates. Worth paying a little more for a shoe that's going to last years.
    I also love that they are made in the USA!

    Keen Durand Low

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    Had a size issue with the first pair. Backcountry processed the return in no time, and I had the right size within a few days.



    If you wear Keens, the Durand has a bit of a different feel compared to the Targhee. I've had three pairs of Targhees with no break period at all. These take more time to break in and the tongue is thick. Another reviewer addressed the tongue issue, but I'm still experiencing the pressure on the top of my foot. I'm kind of on the fence with these, but time will tell.

    The tongue will break in

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I have small feet and need to where a women's shoe since Backcountry.com refuses to sell men's shoes in smaller sizes than size 8. Depending on the brand I usually where a women's 6-7. This shoe I was perfectly between 6.5 and 7.0 where my old Keen Targhee II was a women's 7. I decided to go with the 6.5 due to the snugger fitting shoe without my toes touching the end.



    The only downside to this shoe (besides the price) was that the tongue was thicker than normal and ended up causing pressure points on the top of my foot. This quickly broke in in less than 1 week and is now very comfortable with the tongue ends tucked into the shoe instead of flaring out. I am a long time Keen fan and am very glad I upgraded to the Durand shoe. It is very comfortable (after breaking in the tongue). The sole is made of a softer rubber than my other shoes, which is good because I've been looking for a good dry canyoneering shoe for the last few years and I want a good sticky rubber to grip on the sandstone. It is supposed to be more durable than the normal rubber sole and have a longer life before falling apart.



    Overall I would recommend the Durand shoe to anyone who wants a durable waterproof hiking shoe. Just remember that while the tongue may be uncomfortable at first, give it 4-7 days and it will break in.



    Overall for size, I would rank this true to size/slightly larger than normal. I bought the women's 6.5 and 7 and wore both around the house for a few days (to keep them clean and new) while comparing different sized socks to ensure I keep the one that fits best and returned the other one.
